“Survivor” is now on its 33rd season, which focuses on the divide between millennials and those from Generation X. The show’s long-time host, Jeff Probst, has explained how the idea came to be and why it will make for a great season.

In Jeff’s definition, those belonging to Generation X are those who were born in the years 1963 to 1982, while millennials are those born from 1984 to 1997. He failed to mention where those born in 1983 belong to.

“We’ve never done a season like this, and it will feel very fresh and alive and current and of the time,” he told Yahoo TV.

Jeff admitted that the idea stemmed from a need to entice a younger group of contestants, and that the producers focused on getting their hands on a pool of less experienced applicants. “We had all these great young people coming in and they had a consistent point of view, which was in sharp contrast to the 40-year-olds we were meeting” he said. “It really is a culture war.”

Jeff called the millennials “entitled” and that they “want things on their own terms.” However, he also said that the are “really smart, really driven [and] super passionate.” There is no doubt that the 10 younger contestants on “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” will make things interesting this season.

Will Wahl, who left high school behind to join the show, is just 18 years old and is the youngest contestant ever on “Survivor.” His strategy, as he told People Magazine, is to let everyone think he can be manipulated while he does all the manipulation. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Jessica “Figgy” Figueroa will rely on her people skills.

24-year-old Hannah Shapiro plans to hide the fact that she knows the game inside-out. Taylor Lee Stocker, who is also 24, is less knowledgeable of the game. "I'll take it as it comes," he said. "You know, just watch things as they happen." Another contestant who does know the show is Adam Klein, 25, who admitted trying three other times to make it on the show. He promised that he is not going to blow his chance.

The other 25-year-old on the show is Michaela Bradshaw, who said putting her mind to something is all she needs to get things finished. “‘Survivor’ will be no different,” she told the publication confidently. Justin “Jay” Starrett, 27, also believes he will win the game, and his strategy is to physically dominate the playing field.

On the other hand, Zeke Smith, 28, has a Harvard education under his belt but admitted that he is very unconventional. Meanwhile, 28-year-old Michelle Shubert is willing to flirt her way to the top and admitted that people often easily trust her.

The eldest of the team is Mari Takahashi, who is 31-years-old. The professional video gamer shared that endurance and balance are two of her biggest assets.

“Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” airs in the US on CBS on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m.
